RE­VIEW: DE­SIGNER GENE S XXL GRINDROD B ANK THEA TRE BILLED as a se­quel t o Tim Plew­man’s De­fend­ing the C ave­man, De­signer Genes X XL plumbs the depth of the hu­man g enetic make­up to find out e xactly what it is that makes men and w omen tick.

If Plew­man is to be be­lieved boys are hard­wired from pu­berty to act in a way de­signed to an­noy the women they meet and have re­la­tion­ships.

And women ar e de signed t o be able t o multi­task, f ol­low mul­ti­ple c on­ver­sa­tions and nag their men t o pro­vide for them — whether it’s mam­moth meat in the ic e age or the lat est f ash­ions fr om the mall.

His jour­ney be­gins with a visit to the doc­tor for a check­up where he en­coun­ters six grumpy ladies who don’t have a good word for the male of the species. It was so in­tim­i­dat­ing for our hero that his left tes­ti­cle de­serted him.

But with the aid of some mood­en­hanc­ing drugs from the doc­tor and a lit­tle weed he gets the gump­tion to of­fer a fresh in­sight into the et er­nal b at­tle of the se xes.

The teenagers in the au­di­ence loved ev­ery minute of the show, as did most of the adults that were seated in my vicin­ity. If you loved Plew­man’s De­fend­ing the C ave­man, then chances ar e pretty good that y ou’re go­ing to enjo y this sho w.
